It's official: no one watches award shows anymore!

While the Billboard Music Awards were certainly the talk of the town on Sunday night, it doesn't look like the rest of the country was that interested in the industry — or at least not watching on TV.

That's because despite crowd-pleasing performances from Britney Spears, Celine Dion, Madonna, and even The Go-Go's, the BBMAs actually pulled in their worst numbers in four years!

Apparently, only 8.9 million people tuned in to watch the 3-hour-long event, giving ABC a measly 2.9 rating in the 18-39 demo — that's only slightly better than 2012's 7.4M/2.7!

However, the network was able to beat out NBC's The Carmichael Show, CBS' Undercover Boss, and FOX's animation domination to win the night… but still, we're not impressed.

Maybe Ciara and Ludacris weren't as great hosts as we thought…

Did U tune in for the BBMAs last night??

Even if you're not her biggest fan, this is kind of harsh…

As you're probably aware, Madonna closed out the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night with a touching tribute to Prince.

Queen Madge was joined onstage by Stevie Wonder to perform Nothing Compares 2 U and Purple Rain, and while the covers were quite beautiful, it seems as though a lot of the Internet was upset they weren't "Prince" enough.

However, things really took a dramatic turn shortly after the show, because the BET Awards straight up called Madonna out for doing a terrible job!

In fact, they promoted their very own Prince tribute while trashing the BBMAs on Twitter, posting:

Madonna Pays Tribute To Prince In A Perfect Purple Suit At The Billboard Music Awards!

We think Madonna would have done Prince proud!

The iconic singer was perfection in purple for her tribute performances of Nothing Compares 2 U and Purple Rain during the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night!

The Queen of pop rocked a purple jacquard suit with a ruffled, lace blouse in his honor, and we don't think she could have worn it any better.

Of course, the 57-year-old has worn something similar, but hey, she still looked good!

P.S. Heyyyyy to Stevie Wonder — always a distinguished gentleman!

OK, we already knew Donald Trump was a liar — but it's always nice to have proof!

In case you missed the mini-scandal…

Last week 25-year-old tapes surfaced of The Donald pretending to be a publicist named "John Miller" calling a People magazine reporter to expound on the virtues of one Donald J. Trump, even saying he was constantly being approached by women like Madonna and Kim Basinger.

Then on Friday, because even the undignified Drumpf could see how embarrassing this was, he flat-out denied the entire thing!

Well, now the reporter is here to prove Miller was none other than Trump — with the business mogul's own words!

Apparently, shortly after the piece was published, the future Celebrity Apprentice host called writer Liz McNeil to apologize, saying:
